Prince in Disguise: 03/22/20
Prince in Disguise by Stephanie Kate Strohm is a YA rom-com that is set in Scotland in the midst of wedding planning and a reality television show.
Dylan is the younger sister of former Miss Mississippi, Dusty. She and her family are in Scotland as part of a reality television show that is recording the behind the scenes of the royal wedding between Dusty and laird-to-be Ronan. As he has direct ties to the Scottish royal family, there is a lot for Dylan to learn on this trip, and she wants nothing to do with any of it.
Meanwhile, Dylan has caught the eye Jamie. He's the ne'er-do-well friend of Ronan. He's a nice distraction from the cameras, dress fittings, and wedding planning.
It's obvious from the title what's really going on, even if it isn't obvious for Dylan. It's fun to see her fall in love and then have the big reveal. It's also fun to have this extra fictional leeway with alternate Scotland. It was frankly more fun than squeezing in another Luxembourg sized fictional kingdom in Europe to make this plot work.
